QUETTA:

Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Mir Kamal Khan on Tuesday said that the Almighty has blessed Balochistan with immense mineral wealth and resources which would be utilised in a proper way to put the province on a path of development and prosperity.

He said that mineral resources are considered as a sign of good fortune for the development of any region and there are vast investment opportunities in Balochistan in minerals, fisheries and oil and gas sectors.

He expressed these views while addressing the participants of a seminar on the establishment of a Metal Park in Balochistan jointly organised by the Department of Mines and Mineral Development and the Government of Balochistan.

Jam Kamal Khan said that the government was taking steps under a comprehensive strategy for the development of the Mines and Minerals sector which was an important department for uplifting the province. He said that we had only heard talks about coastal and mineral resources for several years but both sectors were badly ignored by past regimes, adding that nations that care about their coastal and mineral resources have always seen prosperity.
